rup gives a status similar to uptime for remote machines. It broadcasts on the local network, and displays the responses it receives.
Normally, the listing is in the order that responses are received, but this order can be changed by specifying one of the options listed below.
When host arguments are given, rather than broadcasting rup only queries the list of specified hosts.
A remote host will only respond if it is running the rstatd daemon, which is normally started up from inetd(8).
Broadcasting does not work through gateways.
